    what kind of moron would tell a kid that pointing a finger at someone is anyway relevant to some nutcase killing his mother and then murdering 26 or so other innocents

    I think we've just been shown an example.

    exactly, some of these posters appear to have grown up in a world foreign to me and all the other boys I grew up with. I guess they worshipped Barney or something like that and spent all day singing "I love you, you love me, we are a PC family"

    I would hope your fatherly pride would not betray you at the unfortunate childs funeral should the worst happen and he had been taught by you to man up and ignore such things.

    Disregarding that he said to not take a POINTED FINGER as a threat, never said to ignore the threat of a real gun.

    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    that's really silly to think kids playing with their fingers equates to people being shot

    Parents live in a different environment today and have a perfect right to be worried and train their children to be cautious. The same for zero tolerance policies in schools



    I sincerely and honestly would hope that your child Turtle has not been taught to man up and ignore threats of violence lest he disappoint the macho man at home who he calls FATHER and one day you have to face the worst happening to him because of your own extremism and your own pride.

    Since you are sensitive about guns and excuse almost anything in that area- lets leave them for a moment and simply talk about threatening gestures.

    So somebody making a throat slashing gesture to your family member and then pointing at them is nothing to be concerned about.... in your humble opinion of course.
